The Expedition Series (Small, Medium, Large)

From: $40.00

Higher performance than the Classic, but lighter and more packable than the Wolverine, the Expedition earns its name by combining our high-performance Rally Hull with classic seating, a backband, and lightweight carrying handles. The result is a quiver killer packraft built for making miles on big backcountry adventures with occasional moderate whitewater.  Available in size small (formerly known as the Alpacka Original-fits rafters 5’8″ and under), size medium (formerly known as the Yukon Yak – fits rafters 5’8″ to 6′) and size large (also known as the Denali Llama- fits rafters 6′ to 6’4″).   For rafters over 6’4″ who want the features of the expedition we recommend the Gnarwhal size XL or just the- the Mule with whitewater spray skirt.

Includes internal storage dry bags, 12L dry bag, adjustable back-band and whitewater spray skirt.  Please note- does not include thigh straps.

 

Small- 5’8″ and under
Medium- 5’8″ to 6′
Large- 6′ to 6′ 4″
